Jessica Alba in February 2010 Issue of Self Magazine

Jessica Alba Says Yes to the Stretch (Marks)

In the February issue of Self, cover girl Jessica Alba says she spends too much time gushing over her daughter Honor to worry about her post-pregnancy body. I don't think she has anything to worry about, though — Jessica looked amazing cruising the beach in her bikini just three months after giving birth. The star has been laying pretty low as of late, but look for her as part of the star-studded cast in Valentine's Day. Here are some highlights from the article:

  • On her post-pregnancy body: "Pregnancy was the most incredible experience I've ever had, so I’ll take the stretch marks. I’ll take the sagging boobs. I'll take the cellulite I can never get rid of. If you walk around with your head held high and you’re happy and positive, then all that other stuff is irrelevant. Confidence is number one."
  • On diets: “Diets are for the birds. I think you have to eat in a way that makes you feel your best. I include a lot of vegetables and lean protein and fruit and grains in my diet. I’m not a big workout person. Every single day, I tell my girlfriends we’re starting a regimen. And then it’s, like, ‘Want to get dinner? Want a glass of wine?’”
  • On how she uses the Internet: “I’ve bought 70 percent of my house off CraigsList! I’ve found so many things: couches, tables, lamps. I love the idea of recycling furniture and there being a history there.”
